So how rich is Terry Bradshaw? It is estimated by sources that Terry’s net worth is $15 million, the majority of his wealth is largely from his successful career as a football player to 1983. Despite the fact that Terry is now retired from football, he still has other activities, which add to his net worth. For a number of years he has been hosting television shows, which keeps him in the public eye, and adds to his wealth, and so there is a high chance that his net worth will become higher.
Terry Bradshaw Net Worth $15 Million
From a very young age Terry dreamt of being a professional football player. He studied at the Woodlawn High School, where he had an opportunity to play football and be trained by A. L. Williams. Soon it was clear that Terry had a talent for football, as he led his team to the 1965 AAA High School Championship. Later Bradshaw continued his studies at Louisiana Tech University, and continued playing football there, becoming one of the best college football players of all time, as a junior accumulating 2,890 total yards in 1968 ranking No. 1 in the NCAA, and winning in the Rice Bowl. As a senior, he had 2,314 yards, third in the NCAA but from just 10 games, from many of which he was withdrawn after the team built big leads.
In 1970 Terry was the first overall selection by the Pittsburg Steelers in the NFL Draft, and with whom he played for 14 seasons, which added very significantly to Terry Bradshaw’s net worth. During his career, Terry won many awards and titles both individually and with the team. Some of them include four Super Bowl Championships in 1974 , ’75, ’78 and ’79 plus MVP in the last two; four AFC Championships; NFL Quarterback of the Year and MVP (1978), and selected for three Pro Bowl games in 1975, 1978 and ’79. He has also been inducted into the Pro Football, College Football and Pittsburg Pro Football Halls of Fame.
Despite the success Terry achieved, he decided to retire from football in 1983, after repeated elbow injuries. As mentioned, Terry then became involved in other activities. He was signed by CBS TV, and immediately became involved in NFL broadcasts. In 1990 he began hosting “The NFL Today” which added a lot to Terry’s net worth. He has also appeared in various shows and movies, including “Everybody Loves Raymond, “Married…with Children”, “Malcolm in the Middle”, “Hooper”, “Smokey and the Bandit” and others. All these appearances helped Terry Bradshaw’s net worth to grow.
Additionally, Terry is something of an author, having co-written five books, and he has also released five albums of largely country music, although apparently none adding greatly to his wealth.
If to talk about Terry Bradshaw’s personal life, he has married four times, firstly to Melissa Babish(1972-73); secondly to JoJo Starbuck (1976-83) then to Charla Hopkins(1983-99), who is the mother of his two daughters, Rachel and Erin. Since 2014, Bradshaw has been married to Tammy, his girlfriend of the previous 15 years.
In 2004, he admitted that he suffered from clinical depression for most of his adult life. He said it was so severe that he couldn't even enjoy his four Super Bowl championships.
